Look what I just stumbled across on Youtube. The public affairs office for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has their own Youtube channel. I first noticed the title of the video and then noticed that it is from the LDS Church itself. Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints addresses the question of whether there is scientific proof of The Book of Mormon. Although this is a short two minute video, this has got to be the longest “No” answer I’ve ever heard. Watch the video first and then scroll down and read my comments following the video. They will not make sense unless you watch the video first.
Now think about this for a moment. If God wanted us to exercise that kind of faith, why on earth were the first century disciples allowed to see the dead body of Jesus get up and walk?
